ISBN: 978-83-66148-55-0

A landscape format soft-cover book from Kagero, number 41 in their TopColor series. The subject for this one is the Beutepanzer, captured enemy AFVs put to use and with German markings.
Each page has a large colour profile of a vehicle, and dual language (English & Polish) text giving the details of the indidivual vehicle that is illutrated. A good mix of AFVs, including British, American, French, Russian and Polish equipment. Just to give an idea of the variety, a British Scout Carrier, French Somua S-35, American M10 and Russian SU-85 among them.
The other vital element to the book is the inclusion of a good size sheet of decals/transfers which is also tucked in between the pages and this has the markings for you to recreate the various Beutepanzer featured in the book. Not just that, but they are included in all three scales of 1/72, 1/48 and 1/35. Very much a useful book for modellers who fancy trying their hands at a selection of WW2 Beutepanzer.
Thanks to Casemate Books for our sample, the UK distributor for Kagero.
